Paul Grimley Issues Apology On Armagh GAA Fans Forum.
By PJ Browne Updated

Armagh football manager, Paul Grimley, has issued an apology to fans on the Armagh GAA website's fans forum following the county's defeat to Cavan on Sunday.

The statement attempts to explain his implementation of "a very attack minded approach" and how the high risk element of this tactic shall be addressed.

Fans probably won't be delighted to hear that these tactics might take "years to get right" though.

To all Armagh supporters as Manager of our senior Team I am making a short statement in reference to our senior championship match v Cavan last Sunday, firstly let me apologise to all our loyal supporters and to our county board who put there faith in me 6 months ago, if you feel I have let you down with the way we approached the game with reference to our tactics, let me sincerely say sorry for the hurt I have caused, I met with the players and management last night and I conveyed the same in what was a very positive meeting, I am proud to manage a talented loyal committed bunch of lads who where only doing what they were told last Sunday and no blame should be brought to bear on them nor my management team as I have a very astute team around me. In the form of an explanation as to what went wrong as you may or may not know, we have adopted a very attack minded approach from the start of the year, a high pressure high risk strategy which was practised throughout the league with limited success, but we will persist with our plan although we shall address the risk element of our tactic and plan B will arrive when plan A is polished as these need to be worked on over months if not years to get right, finally I hope that our players both young and the more seasoned lads can count on your continued support, as for my long term position no doubt that will be decided by our club delegates at year end.

Thank you for your patience

Kind regards

Paul Grimley

Grimley was the subject to much criticism from Sunday Game analyst, Joe Brolly, after last weekend's game and even felt it necessary to say that he was giving consideration to boycotting RTÉ because of Brolly's comments.
